[ laughter ] that's how i interpret that video. yesterday a bird flew and did something on me and that's supposed to be good news. >> tucker: that's good news? >> clayton: yeah. good luck. >> alisyn: it's supposedly good luck. that's how we comfort ourselves. >> tucker: that's foreboding i would say. >> clayton: do you remember when the president came into office he did a tour of europe and widely criticized by many feel for
3:08am
what he went to berlin and talked about. remember that rousing speech. he also went to other parts of europe. basically some said he was apologizing for america what the bush administration had done. we are going to be inclusive with all of europe. it appears that's what he is doing again and taking criticism this morning by heading to mexico and doing similar things. >> alisyn: some people have called this apology tour because he went to mexico and explained that he thinks that mexico is on the upswing. mind you many people in the audience thought he was talking about a differential mexico. he says mexico does have problems and it has problems with its drug war and has problems with weapons and violence and he said that america has to take responsibility for that because the lions share of guns in mexico come from the united states. >> clayton: let's take a look at what he said. >> in the united states we recognize our responsibilities. we understand that much of
3:09am
the root cause of violence is the demand for illegal drugs in the united states. we also recognize that most of the guns used to commit violence in mexico come from the united states. >> that's a truly outrageous statement. most of the guns in canada come from the united states. there is not an epidemic of violence there. mexico's problems have to do with mexico itself. it is run by people who steal. totally corrupt country with no rule of law and run by the drug cartels. if the united states didn't allow millions of illegal immigrants into our country mexico would be somalia. that would blow up. that is the pressure relief valve. we keep that country afloat to. blame us for their problems is over the top. >> clayton: doesn't deal with the drug cartels. massive corruption and police forces bought and paid for by the drug cartels. whoever gives the most money to the local police gets to run those -- >> clayton: that's our fault. >> apparently.
3:10am
>> unbelievable that the president of the united states. >> clayton: number of guns that come into the country. he fails to mention fast and furious the gun walking scandal that blew up under this administration. and attorney general eric holder held in contempt of congress. these guns, how sands of guns that were given, basically, to drug war lords in mexico in an effort, they said, to track where these things were going. >> alisyn: then they lost track of them. hundreds of those very guns have shown up at brian terry was killed. the president is there because this is on the eve of our immigration debate in the middle i should say immigration debate in this country. he was trying to say that mexico is coming on strong and mexico's economy is coming up. and it's a very bright future. and he gave this speech to iny students who said i
3:11am
like president obama and i like hearing him but i'm not sure what mexico he is talking about. 50% of mexican residents live under the poverty line. they thought his speech was overly rosy and not accurate depiction of the country they live in. >> clayton: president obama cited a pretty famous mexican writer octavia. liberal democrat by all accounts stood against castro's cuba. cited him a number of times throughout his speech. in 1980 he called the united states protecter of tyrants. because mexico couldn't modernize was because of the united states. >> tucker: very common view. a lot of public opinion polling in mexico. take a look at it the united states is dessurprised by many mexicans the mexican government is anti-american. one thing obama is right about it is worth paying attention to what is happening. we are tied to them and
3:12am
they to us. if mexico goes south we are in deeper trouble: are we as responsible for mexico's violence. there as many guns and there isn't that much crime in montana. not how many guns there are it's how people use them or mislead -- misuse them. >> bush administration. fox. texas governor. the amount of money that the bush administration was pouring in to mexico to help them, to stop the violence, to stop the corruption was really helping. so we were funneling all kinds, millions and millions of dollars no mexico and this the is thanks you get hundreds of thousands. a policy to help the mexican comoi. some say at the expense of our own. what do we get for it? a hostile reception and a lot of violence coming across the border. >> alisyn: let us know what you think of the state of
3:13am
mexico today. coming up, there are witnesses to the benghazi terror attack who want to speak out but the white house says they know about them. is this another coverup. a were toker justice department official is going to be here next with that. >> tucker: coca cola truck everturns it was not your typical crash. it never is when it's a soda truck. wait until you hear what distracted the driver. >> a pepsi truck drove by. ♪ i'm in love i'm all shook up. what do you think? that's great. it won't take long, will it? nah. okay. this, won't take long will it? no, not at all. how many of these can we do on our budget? more than you think. didn't take very long, did it? this spring, dig in and save. that's nice. post it. already did. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. ep you yard your own more doing.
3:14am
with your choice lawn insect controls, just $8.88. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money? if your bank takes more money than a stranger, you need an ally. ally bank. your money needs an ally.
3:15am
3:16am
>> clayton: what are whistle blowers. >> i'm not familiar with this notion that has been blocked from investigating. >> they have hired an attorney because they have said they have been blocked from coming forward. >> i'm not familiar with
3:17am
it. >> let's be clear, benghazi happened a long time ago, we are unaware of any agency blocking employees to come forward. >> if they are whifer blowers shouldn't the administration be defending them rather than keeping them quiet? joining us is former department of justice official jay adams. thanks for joining us. >> good morning, tucker. >> how do you think whistle blowers are being silenced in the benghazi case? >> well, look, first of all play number one is to pretend you don't know about them. that's what the president did in your clip. play number 2 is to tell these guys to keep your mouth shut, to stay quiet. don't tell the truth how the entire national security apparatus rewrote the narrative on benghazi in the days after the tragedy occurred. so, this is an administration that doesn't like whistle blowers because it doesn't like transparency. >> tucker: how striking. i always imagined that liberals were the defenders of whistle blowers.
3:18am
there are all sorts of federal statutes designed to protect them. those pushed by democrats historically. you hear all sorts of talk about how whistle blowers are key to running the government in a transparent, non-corrupt way. why this administration not taking a stand on behalf of whistle blowers, do you think? >> well, they only like whistle blowers when they are revealing things about republican administrations. when you have the situation in benghazi, where you have whistleblowers who are l. reveal the incompetence, the radicalism of this administration, suddenly the administration, the suddenly the left is no longer interested in the truth. they want to keep it quiet. they want to intimidate people and get them to not talk. >> tucker: what i have found so striking this has been a pretty prominent news story certainly here on fox and other places as well. that there are apparently people who know something about benghazi who were not there who have not been for whatever reason been allowed to testify in public. president said he never heard of this. day buy that. >> he professed ignorance.
3:19am
it's implawnget the story has the potential for it to it unravel for him to say he doesn't know is unbelievable. what about the last week since he does know? why hasn't he come out and say sure, the whistleblowers can testify. the truth is he is surrounded by people like ben rhodes. you will learn this name. ben rhodes is one of the senior advisors on the middle east. 38-year-old who is behind this policy and is helping to coordinate the campaign to keep the whistleblowers quiet. to keep the narrative stirred in the direction they want. it is implausible that the president doesn't know about this. >> tucker: everything comes out in the end, doesn't it. >> we hope. so that is what is great about america. we are open and transparent government. when you have incompetent radicals running the administration. transparency ultimately needs to win. >> i think it will. jay christian adams. thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you, tucker. >> tucker: pedestrian

movie anymore but reality. "fox & friends" hour two starts right now. >> good morning, we want to get to extreme weather center for southern california this morning. massive wildfire now burning 43 square miles. check out this remarkable image of man standing on the roof of his home as the flames quickly approach. the fires are only 20 percent contained at this hour. shifting winds make it difficult to get handle on the flames. will firemen get any relief today. janice dean live in the exsteaming weather center. she has the first alert forecast. >> i do have good news fortunately for firefighters in the area. they had incredible conditions to deal with fire season has come a little bit early. typically we see fires start to erupt in the late summer, early fall. because we have had such a drought and the winds were
4:02am
incredible. we saw wind gusts in excess to 45 miles per hour yesterday. and that fire just blossomed three times the size of what it was. they just couldn't control it. so the good news is winds are going to shift for the better. and you can see on the satellite radar imagery. they were offshore. you can actually see some of the smoke that was pushed offshore in the last 48 hour loop. but then they are now switching to an onshore flow. that is going to give the moisture from the pacific to move in and the temperatures are going to slowly move downward, which is great news. this is one of the fires that we are talking about. we are seeing the images on the left side of your screen. conditions are going to be improving for the area. temperatures yesterday were in the 80's, 90's across the desert southwest because we have got that on shore flow, the temperatures are in the 60's right now. the humidity is up. we're getting all of that moisture from the pacific. we actually could see some rain in the first alert forecast on sunday for this area.
4:03am
so, better news ahead for the firefighters. they really need the help of mother nature here as the fire is just 20% contained. as we gte into sunday and monday. temperatures much cooler and a lot more moisture in the atmosphere. that is great news. certainly going to keep you up to day. the other big story is the tale of two stories. dry conditions across the west. a lot of moisture across the east where we saw record-breaking rain and snow and cold temperatures and, of course, we will continue to keep you up to date on all of those weather stories from the fox news extreme weather center. tucker, clayton, alisyn back to you. >> another big story we are following for you this morning. brand new details about the death of the boston bombing suspect tamerlan tsarnaev and about that female d.n.a. found on one of the bombs. peter doocy live in boston with the very latest on this. good morning, peter. >> good morning, clayton. and the funeral home is telling us that the immediate cause of death for tam tamerlan tsarnaev is gunshot wounds to the torso
4:04am
and extreatments as well as blunt trauma to the head and torso. but that does not specifically explain if he was killed in the gun battle with police or when his brother allegedly ran him over with the car. as for the latest in the investigation. authorities went back to the area around u mass darted mouth yesterday where dzhokhar tsarnaev was a student. they were searching for bomb testing sites for about five hours yesterday separately sources are telling us that tamerlan tsarnaev's wife vufl assisting authorities. now investigators are trying to figure out if she also assisted her husband while he was on the run. sources have described to us a phone call and at least one email between catherine and tamerlan after the bombing. and that email may have been contained a photo attachment of the fbi wanted poster with that now infamous surveillance shot that we have all seen. tamerlan though, of course, is dead.
4:05am
and every cemetery in massachusetts has rejected requests to bury his body. nobody wants him in his neighborhood. including the folks out in wooster about an hour away from here who are upset that funeral home there is handling the final arrangements the funeral director says is he doing his jont same way the doctors who saved the younger bombing suspect dzhokhar's life did their job. >> when you say helped to burry, why would you help to bury a terrorist? i'm helping to bury a body that has to be buried. nothing to do with a terrorist. if i didn't know he was terrorists. i bury people here who are murderers. we have confirmation about something that a lot of people have speculated about the al qaeda web magazine inspire was found on some computers that the fbi has been poring through in this investigation. we just don't know if it was a computer s to catherine russell or one of the tsarnaev

4:07am
verify all student visas that are currently outstanding in the united states. that was a laugh. this is being done, of course, after it's already in some sense too late. people killed in boston. this already happened. why does it take a terror attack like this to remind us that we should check to see if visas are still valid. >> alisyn: it gets worst. the border agent when he came back in through the airport tazhayakov, when he came back into the check point did not have access to the department of homeland security records. so the data that is stored at the contempt -- department of homeland security border patrol agents at points of entry cannot access it. >> clayton: this is exactly what we went through after 9/11. all of these agencies who couldn't communicate. how the fbi's computer couldn't talk to the cia. how the first responders in new york and nypd didn't have access to certain terrorist information. here you go again. so you have the homeland security department, which
4:08am
is supposed to be the place that was created where all of this stuff was to come in central database and the border agents couldn't have access to that information. >> irony while students coming in or going out with visas no longer valid and no one is doing anything about it the rest of us are coming under more intense scrutiny. cameras watch us. >> alisyn: take our shoes off. get frinksed. >> stripped at the airport. law abiding americans going through the paces in order to keep the country safe. the very people who pose a threat to the country potentially aren't being scrutinized out of nowhere. >> we keep asking in the wake of the boston bombing how much of our freedom do we want to give up? >> no more. >> clayton: how about clamp down on student visas, gapping holes in the system that should have been closed after 9/11. we don't need to give up any more of our freedom. clamp down on gapping holes in our security system. >> tucker: law awiding people pay the price. shooting occurs law abiding people under scrutiny because they own guns. they aren't going to do
4:09am
anything wrong with those guns. let's focus on the people who pose a threat and not the ones who pose no threat which is most people in america. >> clayton: now we have got some headlines. >> alisyn: tell you what is happening at this hour frantic search underway for missing minnesota woman whose estranged boyfriend shot himself just before police could question him. mandy mantula last seen last wednesday with david roe. she was reported missing the next day. roe went into the police department for questioning but he shot himself in the head in the parking lot before police could talk to him. hundreds of people coward the parks looking for any sign. >> i miss her. oso just have to keep praying that, you know, she is safe and she is not suffering. >> roe is alive but unresponsive. police say he left a note in his car but would not reveal what it said.

4:11am
carolina this morning because as obama care unfolds around the country and into states. we keep hearing that it's not fully implemented of course it probably won't be until 2014. many states are throwing down the gauntless saying we don't want it here and doing everything they can in their power to keep it south carolina may have taken the furthest step trying to keep obama care out of that state. >> south carolina state house passed a bill saying that they consider it illegal. they will not be implementing anybody who tries to implement the affordable care act. aka obama care will be in breech of this bill. it's because of the governor there, nikki hailey say they can't afford it here she is. >> we will in the pursue the type of government run health exchanges being forced on us by washington. despite the rose colored rhetoric coming out of d.c., these exchanges are nothing more than a way to make the state do the federal government's bidding and spending massive amounts of taxpayer dollars on insurance
4:12am
subsidies that we can't afford. >> tucker: do you know what i like about this? it's taking place in public. this is a debate that they are having in south carolina. everyone can see. you can pull the video and contrast this with what the u.s. congress is doing, secret negotiations to excement key hill staffs from obama care. because if they have to aby the by the regulations a lot of the smart people will leave because they can't afford to work there. >> alisyn: parsing all sorts of waivers as well. we report on them but you don't know about them until after big companies are able to get out of it. >> clayton: is this a show? >> look how the municipal court ruled on this all right. do states then have a ride to find certain things within the law that they deem unconstitutional or that they're going to find illegal and therefore it trumps federal law? this was the whole thing at the heart of the municipal court decision. >> tucker: obama people

lost work yours and compliance and things of that nature. most expensive regulation that we saw under this research was one through the e.p.a. which the fuel economy standards for new cars which would raise the cost of the new car by about $1,800 on average. that's the sort of thing that you don't calculate when you are pushing this legislation through the process but it actually has a huge impact on the economy. >> tucker: if you have an economy that has low growth and high unemployment and we have both. you want people to start new businesses is anyone measuring the deterrence to that from these new regulations? >> you know it's very difficult to measure something along those lines, businesses that don't exist. but i think you have to say that these go doo have an impact. particularly i think within obama care. obviously dodd frank and obama care together today account for almost 30,000 pages of regulations. new regulations that touch every aspect of the economy. and so for a small business that's trying to just analyze how they are going to comply with these laws. there is an enormous impact in terms of a disincentive

ever have even awakened from that state. >> sorry to wake you up. >> tucker: what is going on janice, more than a food snow? >> a lot of people think they are waking up to a nightmare because it's may and we have seen record breaking snow. look at minneapolis. this is nice in december when you have got santa on the way. but not in may. we saw records shattered all across the midwest down through the central plains. arkansas has never seen snow in may. and it happened. so, really, this is just incredible as some folks are just thinking i just don't want to go through this anymore. let's take a look at the satellite radar imagery. i will show you where the storm is right now. the snow is tapering off, thank goodness but not after dumping in some cases over a foot, a foot and a half of snow. look, this is incredible for may. to see 18 to 24 inches on the ground across iowa, up towards the u.p. of michigan.
4:38am
each down towards arkansas. i mean, it really is quite incredible. fortunately, we think this is it. but never say never in the weather department. look at some of these all time state records. 18 inches in parts of minnesota. wisconsin, 17 inches there. a foot in iowa. and, again, five inches in arkansas, a place where they have never seen may snow. and there is some of the other notable totals. 28 inches in colorado. so, hopefully we're done with the snow, but, again, never say never. i hear that there is some breakfast going on. tucker, inside? >> nope, not in here, janice. >> you asked the question, janice, i'm grateful you did. who wants breakfast when you can do brunch? >> i'm there. >> tucker: exactly. come on in the studio. here to show us some way to incorporate the fresh flavors of spring into a delicious brunch menu are chef kyle mcclelland and chef vincent at the --

petrillo. vincent is also a former food network chop champ. nice to see you this morning. we are entering spring idea of brunch sitting outdoors and having a meal and getting everyone together is what is behind all of this. >> at the restaurant we use fresh items. this is some of the stuff we offer on brunch menu. >> french toast the winner over here. classic and we do differently. stuff it with a fresh berries and we do like the maple syrup. do spiced maple syrup. >> what is that? i have been eyeing that all morning. >> stuffed benies. >> did you ever get nittany lion eat an entire bowl of those. >> every day. every brunch. >> if you don't want a sugar bomb in the morning and believe me those look tempting what are your other suggestion. >> really nice spring pea soup. milk based. spring garlic.
4:40am
and it's steeped and then we purre the fresh peas into it. search with. >> you don't happen to have any here right now do you. >> do. >> frogs legs? >> we do them in the restaurant. >> look how pretty this is. little beautiful flowers as garnish. put in the pea soup. alli is downing some pea soup. eggs benedict. you do interesting version. >> restaurant we do it's called the prospect benedict. house pork belly. kind of like bacon and then we do thick bacon. >> that's just out of hand. >> look at the spoon given me to sample the pea soup. this will do it. i will use the ladle. >> eggs we do in house. it's really fun. >> this is delicious. >> clayton: we're going to
4:41am
have alli make a flat bread here? it has caramelized onions eat it for breakfast. smoked bacon that we do. a little fresh cheddar cheese and arugula friday eggs on top. >> are those cooked already? >> right here? >> alisyn: i know how to crack an egg. >> i'm impressed. >> you have got to crack a few of those to make an omelet. >> okay. so once i fry these up, then i'm going to pop them on to the spatula? >> okay. >> tucker: do you add flour. >> we have all of these beautiful garnishments a really nice farm in ohio. >> tucker: do you eat them? >> alisyn: i hope so. i just did. do they have any hallucinogenic effect. >> not at all.
4:42am
unfortunately. >> alisyn: do this sunny side up. >> we do like little friday eggs. >> alisyn: do you want me to flip them. >> no. >> alisyn: put them on the pizza? >> put them on the flat bread. show her how it's done. >> set off a smoke alarm in here. >> this looks really good. >> unbelievable. you are single handedly bringing bag lunch. >> we're going to taste all these things momentarily and people can find your recipes i hope on our web site? >> yes at foxnews.com. >> eat well. >> coming up here on the show we will be talking about this. there are witnesses to the benghazi terror attack that wanted to speak out. the white house says they knew nothing about it. is this another coverup or are they telling the truth? americans deserve to know the truth is he going to join us next.
4:43am
>> tucker: new monster lurking in the water or appears to be. where this thing was just spotted. recognize that? >> alisyn: look at this. we just completed our pizza. fantastic. [ lisa ] my name's lisa, and chantix helped me quit. i honestly loved smoking, and i honestly didn't think i would ever quit. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. it put me at ease that you could smoke on the first week. [ male announcer ] some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depresd mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chanti if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or otr mental health proems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away
4:44am
as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, or if you develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. with chantix and with the support system it worked for me.

[ male announcer ] clean more, work less, with the mr. clean magic eraser extra power. >> tucker: benghazi bombshell speaking to fox news u.s. military forces were left out in the cold the night of the terror attack. >> the problem with state department is they don't have those procedures in place. and now, you know, they are making up for all the mistakes they made with excuse and there is no excuse. >> tucker: joining me now from virginia beach to discuss the handling of benghazi is scott taylor. mr. taylor, thanks a lot for joining us.
4:47am
the administration says, as you know, that they have reviewed what happened on september 11th in benghazi and they are satisfied that the response was adequate. do you buy that? >> no, i don't. in fact, we're calling for the select committee to make sure that the folks get answers, like you said, i'm in virginia beach in virginia we have 800,000 veterans that something smells fishy. we see committee form so all the powers get together and can find out what really happened. >> tucker: jay carney made the point it's been a long time since benghazi has happened. it's been many months. why don't we know precisely why aid wasn't sent to those americans killed? >> sure. what you see, of course, there has been a lot of stalling and stonewalling and folks not wanting to testify, having excuses not to testify. again, jay carney, that's a pretty ridiculous statement and quite frankly i think he should be fired over it but a lot of americans want to know the answers and want the select committee to come together and investigate. i was speaking with former
4:48am
teammate of mine this morning on the way over here. we were on the set before and quite frankly talking about extremist force. when you get the call, man, you are ready to go. within a short period of time your bags are packed and ready to get in there and rescue fellow morns. >> absolutely. it's not as much we didn't know this was happening. cameras monitoring the fire fight in progress; is that correct? >> yes. as the administration testified, there was a drone overhead that was checking it out and you know it's interesting that generalham told a sitting member of congress his people were ready to go and he never got the call. these are things the american people want to know and how our leadership handled. when you have a break-in at democratic national headquarters and watergate that warranted a special commission then you need the same thing for the break-in of a u.s. embassy. americans and u.s. ambassador getting killed rippled in a committee. that deserves answers. >> tucker: do you believe
4:49am
regulation could you personnel including the seals could have gotten to benghazi in time to save those lives. >> let me tell you something, everywhere in the world there are deployable forces that are ready to go in extremists short leash time line they are ready to go. we have the deploibleg forces anywhere in the world. certainly folks in the area in europe that could have made it there. quite frankly, this was an attack on american sovereignty. on american soil. you have to send people in there it's irresponsible not to. i know that secretary panetta said we don't send people in without knowing and having a plan. that makes sense and there is some merit to that. however, the very definition of an extremist force you get in there and help fellow americans. >> tucker: this tragedy becomes even more depressing the more you learn. scott thank you for scbloing us we appreciate it? >> thank you for having me. >> exhausting being a killed. this guy couldn't keep
4:50am
chicken nuggets. one got stuck. got a thousand dollars. that's how much a mint julip can cost you at the kentucky derby. >> it's all for charity this silver one. what else goes into it that you can drink like you are sitting in millionaire's row. oh yeah, talk derby to me, baby. we'll be right back. let's see what you got. rv -- covered. why would you pay for a hotel? i never do. motorcycles -- check. atv. i ride those. do you? no. boat. house. hello, dear. hello. hello. oh! check it -- [ loud r&b on car radio ]

>> alisyn: what character are you channeling now. >> tucker: drug lord? >> tucker: i'm not ashamed. we are celebrating the kentucky derby. >> alisyn: it means mint julips. our own anna kooiman is live at churchill downs. >> we will get to the $1,000 mintd julip 6:24 tonight. the rain has held out so far. that's not what meteorologists are saying for later today. some are calling it a day for the ducks. a mudder or even raw. we are crossing our fingers that doesn't happen. 160,000 people packing into churchill downs. you know, wearing their hats and seersucker and all of that orb is favored this morning. joined now by america's teacher. good morning to you. >> good morning, anna.
4:55am
i always love when you come to derby and visit us. and this time i want you to make you a very special mint july lip: it all goes to charity. i want to make sure we get that in there every mint julip at the derby doesn't cost a thousand dollars. >> a nice charity called old friends that take care of thorough bread horses. starts out with kentucky soregum. sweetner that has mint. we crush up kentucky mint leaves right there. >> check this out there are gold flecks on there. >> garnishes that gold nice dusd mint leaf. and into that, of course, we have got to have bourbon. >> good stuff. >> official bourbon of churchill downs. bourbon forward drink if you are paying a couple thousands dollars you want a few ounces in there. >> this ice is extra special as well. >> actually, this ice is made from nova scotia filtered through gold.
4:56am
>> who would know? >> even a gold sipping straw. even the gold sipping straw is gold. garnished with a gold mint leaf that goes right in there. >> all bourbon all the time here. >> there it is $1,000. >> he is talking derby to me baby. >> talking derby. because with that i have got a little desert. these are pecan bars. taken chocolate syrup and added bourbon to it bourbon and chocolate go wonderful together. how good does that look? awesome. >> you got to add. that's something that everybody can do at their derby parties, too clayton, alisyn and tucker. >> alisyn: i know you are talking back to us because you want to eat now. i see where you are coming. thanks, anna. check back with you a little bit later. coming up here on a show should a 15-year-old be allowed to get the morning after pill without permission? president obama saying is he comfortable with it we will ask governor mike huckabee what he thinks about this at the top of the hour.
4:57am
>> most exciting city has just been named. here is a hint. not new york city coming up. >> send in your guesses. ♪ ♪
4:58am
4:59am
5:00am
>> alisyn: good morning, everyone. today is saturday, may 4th. i'm alisyn camerota. we are happy you are with us. an extreme weather alert. homes engulfed by flames in second. this while thousands of people are forced to flee. others are refusing to go. we have the latest on the wildfire for you next. >> amazing pictures. the media stayed silent on the benghazi terror attack. now they are down playing the boston bomber's connection to a muslim student group. surprised? you shouldn't be. but why can't they just report the fax? governor mike huckabee joins us next. >> clayton: apparently being a little kid is so exhausting like this little guy. can't even keep his eyes open to eat his chicken nugget dinner?
5:01am
what kid doesn't like chicken nuggets? what had him so tired? [ laughter ] oh, governor huckabee is losing it over there too. "fox & friends" hour three starts right now. >> welcome, those of how stayed with us for the previous two hours. >> clayton: where is the most craziest place you ever fell to sleep? >> alisyn: found up on a subway in madrid backpacking let's go backpacking tour. i was so tired going from country to country i was standing on a train sleeping can you top it. >> tucker: i fell asleep very recently interviewing somebody for a job. he knew and i knew and we both pretended it didn't happen. truly shameful. you sweep it right under the rug.
5:02am
>> clayton: shook his hands and walked away. did i not hire him. >> clayton: my daughter falls asleep sitting up in her crib with a chicken nugget perhaps. >> tucker: massive wildfire in southern california scorching 43 square miles in less than 48 hours. the flames are only 28% contained at this hour. shifting winds making it difficult to get a handle on them. some people like this guy refuse to leave. take a look at that remarkable. will firemen get any relief today? janice dean live in the extreme weather center with that first alert forecast. janice? >> yes, good news for the firefighters and residents that live in that beautiful neighborhood-million-dollar homes. the winds have of shifted. can you see that on the satellite radar industry. see the winds that are shifting the cloud cover and the smoke. if you can see it so we had offshore flow yesterday, winds 40 miles per hour and now we have got an or shore flow. that's bringing the temperatures down and the humidity up. excellent news for
5:03am
firefighters. temperatures 61 degrees. winds are light out of the southeast. and the humidity is up. so this is the news they need to hear. the temperatures are going down. again, because we have that on shore flow bringing all of that pacific moisture in. we actually even have some rain in the first alert forecast for monday. so, this fire just really exploded within just a matter of hours. three times the size in just a matter of hours. the good news is the weather is going to help those firefighters which is great news. and we'll continue to bring you the very latest from the fox extreme weather center. tucker, clayton, alli, back to you. >> new developments this morning in the boston marathon bombing. we now know how the suspect tamerlan tsarnaev died. you'll remember there was a debate whether he was shot or run over. we also know more about that female d.n.a. that was found on one of the bombs. peter doocy is live in boston with the latest. hi, peter. >> hi, alisyn. the center of attention right now in the investigation is the dead bombing suspect's tamerlan tsarnaev's widow catherine
5:04am
russell who authorities now say spoke to him on the phone at some point while he was on the run and sent him an email with an attachment and we're told that there is a possibility that attached file may have been the fbi's wanted poster of tamerlan tsarnaev. with that said, sources close to catherine russell telling us she is assisting authorities in their investigation. an investigation which is also revealed that al qaeda's web magazine inspire was on some of the computer's reviewed by the fbi. we just don't know whose computers. we could know that tamerlan tsarnaev's cause of death was gunshot wounds to the torso and extreatments along with blunt for the tawm. head and torso. they don't want him. they have refused the funeral home worcester massachusetts. disgusted there is a terrorist being kept in their community. funeral director session is he just doing his job and everyone deserved
5:05am
distinguished of burial. with the exception of funeral director there is a loft anger in this state about where tamerlan tsarnaev's body will end up. i have got to say that here, a block away from the finish line in copley square it's a totally different story. somber all the time even when there are really big crowds, i have got to say really quickly, at the memorial behind me, the most stark thing, the most touching thing more than all the pictures and the prayers and the shirts that have been left behind are the shoes. there are many dozens, baby even hub drez of pairs of sneakers that have been left behind which is very unusual, something unexpected to see at a memorial service. really harsh reminder that the bombs that went off here were not on the battlefield. they were on boylston street in boston on what was supposed to be a he very happy day. back to you in new york. >> that is intense. obviously of course because of the runners and because some people did lose limbs. that is really touching, thanks. >> let's bring in governor mike huckabee to talk about some the new details that we're learning about this
5:06am
case. governor nice sty morning. >> good morning. >> among the details we are learning is the connection that the younger brother dzhokhar tsarnaev had to a muslim student group. that we now are learning had close ties to the muslim brotherhood. but it seems that the news media has been down playing this connection as if that is just simply an aside. something that he was experimenting with in college. really does not point to any sort of larger radical agenda with this kid. >> it's part of a greater pattern that we have seen with the creation whether it was fort hood which is still officially classified as work place violence even though the shooter major nidal hasan stood up and yelled ala akbar as he started firing shots at military it was the narrative they gave in little rock when a radicalized young man from memphis carlos bledsoe so who he ho became mohammed akim told everyone he had did it because he had been radicalized. an act of jihad. never been given any indication that really was
5:07am
terrorism. even though everybody except the administration understands. >> this one the administration came out and said it was terrorism. >> how could they not? they still do not want to come out and say we have a serious threat because of radicalized islam. not all muslims are terrorists, for lesson's sakes. no one that i know of suggests that. it's just -- it's dishonest and disingenuous for us to continue to say right after the bombing this is probably the work of some right wing antitax, antigovernment person when no one knew. never like on air apology from people who made those ridiculous speculations. that's why i think that it is very important that americans understand we do have a threat that threat is jihad. it is not about what we have done to them. that's nonsense. it is a fundamental part of their doctrine to believe that we're all infidels and that we must die. it's that simple. >> tucker: liberals tend to take a hard line. christmas tree outside city
5:08am
hall theocracy is on the way. >> absolutely. >> tucker: intentionally ignoring the religious connotation of these attacks. where is the sensitivity coming from. >> christians who are still holding to old fashioned traditions about marriage, for example, are cast as bigoted homophobes. now, what the position in islam regarding homosexuality not same sex marriage but homosexuality. death death by stoning. i don't understand you have these very, harsh radical carried out kind of zaniness going on honor killing. >> the first people to be executed would be liberals. i don't understand why they don't perceive the threat to themselves. >> there is no rationale for the way in which the left basically treats islam in the public square. it just doesn't make any sense. >> is this political correctness then? we don't want to hurt their
5:09am
sensibilities? we don't want to touch a nerve? >> seems to be. in fact, remember, when benghazi thing happened, it was all because of this little clip from a youtube video that was ridiculous. and, obviously it wasn't. we knew it wasn't from the beginning. but that was a narrative to say oh o, we can't offend the sensitivity of muslims. i'm a christian. my sensitivities are offended every single day i don't kill somebody over it i have never thought about it.ling somebody because of >> alisyn: want to transition to something close to your heart you gave the eulogy at george jones funeral it was a star studded event. tell us what you said. >> one of the things i wanted to point out is that george jones sang for us not just to us. he was often called the voice of country music but also the voice of the common man. george jones was not cavier and cabernet. he was cornbread and catfish. he sang for all those people out there who knew they would never be in the spotlight, never be on the stage. but the millions of fans who adore him knew that he
5:10am
had lived where they lived. he had walked where they had wawblegd and he understood the pain and trials and he sack them with his heart. there willner be another voice quite like george jones. many will emulate him but never be one like him. country music, the authenticity of it is in part because, taking a look at other genres of music, the blues is the music of what we were. gospel is the music of what we will will be. country is the music of what we are. >> and people relate to it in a very powerful way. it was an amazing service. a great tribute and it was almost like the cmt -- or the cma awards, every country artist. writer, producer, it was just truly amazing. >> here is a few people. laura bush was there. charlie damages. >> laura bush sang one of the greatest country songs. she did a patsy klein tune. not. i did get your total attention with that. >> tucker: how was charlie
5:11am
damages? >> he is one the greatest human beings ever. >> i have always thought that is he just the greatest person. he loves america. he is a man of great faith. but he is one of the kindest, most decent human beings ever to be around. i love the man. all these people are. >> i set next to brad paisley, kid rock behind me. barbara mandrell over to my right. >> holly smokes. >> amy grant over to my left it was amazing thick. there were the oak ridge boys and tanya tucker behind me and over to kid rock's right. truly an amazing array. but all of us had this one common thing. by the way, i'm not there because of anything other than i was representing fans. i grew up loving his music and grew up actually playing in some bands when i was in junior high and high school that thought they were playing george jones. bush butchered some george jones songs along the way. it was such an honor just
5:12am
to be a part. here is the kind of service that you would only see for a president or a king or a prime minister and in many ways it was a fitting tribute to a person who had lived through some very tough times but, you know what? he finished well. and this is the beauty of his life is that sometimes people start wonderfully and they finish poorly. here was a man who had really, really tough bumps in the road. but he told us all that it's okay when you finish well and he did. >> beautiful. >> clayton: and when you have a lovely wife too behind him. >> he is delightful. >> tucker: we'll be right back with this. president obama says he is comfortable with girls as young as 15 getting the morning after pill without the permission of their parents. when is young too young? >> apparently being a little kid is so exhausting this little guy can't even keep his eyes open to finish his mcnuggets. what had him so tired?

5:16am
>> tucker: fda is low rg the plan b contraception foil 15 without parental permission. what does president obama have to say about this? >> that's the fda's decision to make. that's secretary sebelius' decision to review. but i'm very comfortable with the decision they have made right now based on solid scientific evidence for girls 15 and older. >> clayton: we are back with governor mike huckabee. this is fascinating. he has come up with a scientific approach to this. we have heard stories,
5:17am
reported on stories on the show where girls as young as 9 getting pregnant. what scientific basis. what arbitrary basis can they go to pick 15? and he, the president, the obama administration said they were not going to play politics with science and that your healthcare. and this is exactly what many of the left actually angry about this just as the right angry about this. >> you know, saying this is scientific. okay. well, then, if this is scientific if 15-year-olds are mature enough to go self-prescribe a medication likes plan b one step. then it must be that science would also dictate that they are mature enough to join the military, buy alcohol, tobacco, get married, sign contracts, and go rent an apartment. i mean, come on. there is reason that we have a sense of majority age. because we recognize that people who are 15, whether they're male or female but especially if they are male. but even female have not fully developed. their judgment hasn't fully developed. if their judgment is not strong enough to have decided about whether to have sex when they are 15 years old, do we really
5:18am
think that they have suddenly a burst of maturity when they go to the pharmacy and say i would like one of those pills? do we know that they will just take one? do they think they will take two? will they get give it to an 11-year-old? my gosh? what happened to our common sense here. it just is amazing to me. >> alisyn: is this preferable to unwanted pregnancy or abortion. >> that's not the question. the question is whether or not we ought to help kids to understand there are consequences to their actions. i think what we do by always putting this sort of artificial safety net, we become co-dependent dents of people's promiscuous behavior. we become enables. we tell them do whatever you want to do. there is always something that will come in and rescue you and keep you from the cobs sequences. and no unwanted pregnancies are not a good thing. abortions are a horrible, who horrid thing. this is not an answer. teaching kids there is a right and there is a wrong.
5:19am
and that there are consequences for action. and if they see that there are consequences with their friends for inaction. i think that's a more powerful message than sneak over to the drugstore. think about. this a parent has to give written permission for a child to get an aspirin at school but the same kid can go to the drugstore and get this drug? do we know what the long-term effects are? how will it effect her when she is 35? no, we don't. i'm just telling you this is mess. >> tucker: no aspirin lobby. there is a lobby on behalf of this. i'm confused by cutting out parents. i believe the f.d.a. has studied the physical effects of this. i do think this seems likened run around parental authority. their argument lots of parents are bad and be mean to their kids. truth is most parents are not bad they will be good. they want to be involved in their kid's lives. why aren't they saying something about the federal government again allowing kids to go around them? >> at some point we have to
5:20am
decide do mothers and fathers governments make the best parents? let the government raise our kids from the cradle all the way get out of climatological college and beyond be done with it. >> there is a reason in god's great plan, a mother and a father come together, they create the next generation and then they train that generation to become our replacements. that was never intended to be a role that the government would play but increasingly that's the role that the government is playing. and i think that the long-term consequences are absolutely disastrous. >> government can't fix a pothole let alone raising our family. what's coming up on your show tonight. >> talk about benghazi with senator lindsey graham. we also will be talking about some of the real challenges that we are facing right now in getting truth out of this government. because, let's face it, we are not getting a lot of truth. and i think senator graham is going to give us some interesting previews of what is about to happen when the hearings start this week. governor huckabee? >> alisyn: we will be watching. >> yahoo's ceo maher only

maternity leave for her employees for 18 weeks to 16 weeks for new moms and 8 weeks for new dads. is it a good idea for too much? we are joined by cindy the founder and chief business officer of completely bare spas and beauty products and susan patton, you will
5:25am
remember her human resource professional and the princeton mom who wrote the provocative article about finding a husband. 18 weeks of maternity leave. can any of us disagree with that? is that a good thing. >> a great thing for the company to give a woman enough time to actually get herself together and to make sure that the baby is sleeping through the night and she has the right care and then you can go back to the office and be productive. >> alisyn: any problem with it, susan? >> not that i have a problem with it so clear to me this was not about doing what's best for the women working at yahoo. instead attempt to resurrect yahoo and maher telecommuting option. most can't manage work without telecommuting option. if she felt it was fair and reasonable, that's what she should have offered when marissa started at yahoo. this is very much, i think, a pr move and not an h.r. move trying to resuscitate
5:26am
marissa maher and yahoo's image. >> can i say something to that? first of all increased the stock up to 60% since she has been there. i don't think she has time for a pr move. now she is only being competitive right now with facebook. google, they all offer that. so it's really just kind of being competitive. i don't think it has anything to do with her image. that's not what she is about. she just increased the stock 60%. >> some people have made the argument if this if only she were to allow telecommuting and working for whom whom for moms or any kind of parents then you wouldn't necessarily need 16 weeks off. it would be more helpful, frankly, for parents if you could work from home as your children even get older. >> exactly. what i understand from the reports i have made and the "l.a. times" and elsewhere that she did this very specifically to weed out underproductive employees. >> well, telecommuting portion. >> eliminated telecommuting to weed out under productive. if you have underperforming employees have to weed them out. let go of employees that
5:27am
aren't performing. to eliminate telecommuting under the guise of eliminating under productive employees is hurting a huge group of women who otherwise really couldn't work if they are not afforded that flexible option. >> whole thing with working from tell muting i'm at home and telling my kids to go away, go away i'm working that's not productive. even at my house i have a place i go downstairs to a different office. and that's working from home. okay? >> i work from home, too. but it is harder. >> alisyn: i understand it's hard to work from home. >> it is. not everybody has the discipline to work from home. but i think that there are many functions be performed not only but even probably better from home without the distraction of the office. will a al leads ladies we have to leave it there. more to say. we would love to hear your thoughts on it find me at twitter at alisyn camerota. great to he so you guys. >> thank you. >> so much more.

5:38am
have respiratory problems. temperatures are going to go down and we have an on shore flow now as opposed to an offshore flow. what that means is moisture is going to come in from the pacific. the temperatures are going to drop and the humidity levels are going to go up. that is excellent news for firefighters. i mean, this fire just raged for hours yesterday. it was our top story and will continue to be our top story throughout the day today. the good news is i do believe firefighters will have this fire contained if the weather continues to be this way over the next couple of days. there is a look at your satellite and radar imagery. look at the mess across the central u.s. where we had record breaking snow, snow in may. folks in arkansas have never seen snow in may before. and it happened. look at some of these city snow storm totals. 14 inches for rochester minnesota. over nine inches for parts of wisconsin and iowa and nebraska over three inches. a trace tulsa, oklahoma. again, that is a record for

5:47am
oddly in the state of utah if you are 16 or 17 and this punk, i will call him a punk that's what he is. 16 or 17 and you commit a serious crime like that, you will -- you have to really prove that you don't deserve to be in adult court. in other words, they are going to start on juvenile court. there is a very good likelihood they will bounce this kid up. if this father dies and let's hope that he doesn't. if he dies, getting bounced up to adult court is automatic. he won't even be able to plead that he should stay in juvenile court. >> legally though this is what is fascinating to me. i didn't realize when you put on a refuse's uniform that you are assuming a certain level of risk. explain what that means. >> when people get injured at sporting events, there is a notion called assumption of the risk, which will prevent you from being compensated if you get hurt in the normal course of the sport. for example. this ref might expect to get kicked in the face during the normal course of play. what he is not going to expect and the risk is he not assuming is getting punched in the face by a
5:48am
punk because the kid doesn't like the call. that's house of assumption of the risk. this ref and his family could sue the kid's family for wrongful death or for his injuries depending on what happens. >> this is not the first time this rev has been -- ref has been hurt. stop refereeing. this is soccer. not hockey. he loved it. this was his passion he went back for more never imagine he would be punched in the head because somebody would get that angry about a call. >> exactly. the other side of this argument, however, if i'm representing the kid, the kid's argument is going to be wait a minute, punching somebody in the face should not lead to a coma. punching somebody in the face should not lead to death. so there is definitely arguments on both sides of this. but, the referee is not going to be held accountable because he previously got hurt. he loved it like you said. this was his sport. this is what he loved to do. he could get kicked in the faces a many times as he want. it's not going to change the outcome of this case.
5:49am
>> the defense attorney in this case on behalf of the kid, the punk, what what would they argue in this? this ref has a issue of issuing calls and angering? >> i don't think that argument will fly for the kid. the better argument would be listen, it was not foreseeable that a punch in the face for whatever reason was going to result in this level of injury because a coma that he may never come out of and/or death because they are not sure if this ref is ever going to come out of. not sure if he is going to live. one punch in a face. if you get into a first fist a cuff. hockey dad did that with a coach. that was a fight where it could have stopped in the middle and he didn't. he went to prison for 8 years al i remember that one. jonna thanks for coming in here. >> clayton: you may think your kitchen is clean. did you know germs can live on your counters for 18 hours? we will show you how to

6:02am
>> on shore flow is going to happen. yesterday when the fires just erupted three times their size in just a matter of hours, we had an offshore flow. we had high pressure dominating the west and those clockwise winds moving offshore, so that goes through canyons and valleys and dries the air out, warms things up and bring those very gusty winds. the other pro problem is we're o a moderate to severe drought across california. the west is just parched, so that's another thing, another concern. typically fire season starts in the fall, but we've got an early start on this because they didn't get the snow pack that they typically need across the sierra nevada mountains. all that snow pack melts and gets into the ground and it helps the firefighters when wildfire season starts. those live piction that come in from venue tur ra county, we'll keep you up to date. the good news as clayton mentioned, they have an onshore flow. that means the winds have shifted and now they're moving onshore. that's going to bring the
6:03am
temperatures down, and the relative humidity will go up. excellent news for firefighters, and this is going to be ongoing throughout the day today and into tomorrow. we actually could even see rain in the forecast on monday, all good news for firefighters. i do believe they're going to have this one contained within the next day or so. back to you. >> wow. thanks, janice. good news there. well, new developments this morning in the boston marathon bombing case. the official cause of death for tamerlan tsarnaev and more about the female dna found on one of the bombs. peter doocy is live in boston for us with the latest on this story. peter, what do you now? >> reporter: tucker, we know that tamerlan tsarnaev died violently, just like his victims. that's according to the funeral director who tells us that the immediate causes of death were gun shot wounds to the torso an extremities as well as blunt trauma to the head and torso, and every cemetery in massachusetts has so far denied the funeral home in worcester,
6:04am
massachusetts, about an hour here permission to bury the suspected marathon bomber. the funeral director saideserver burial. he said he's ready for protests which actually started with many, many middle fingers and a lot of profanity on that funeral home's front lawn. these folks out in worcester do not want a terrorist in their neighborhood, dead or alive. >> when you say help to bury, why would you help to bury a terrorist? i'm helping to bury a body that has to be buried. i bury people here that were murderers. >> reporter: tamerlan tsarnaev's widow, kathryn russell, is assisting investigators according to sources, but she apparently spoke to her fugitive husband on the phone after the marathon bombing and sent him an e-mail with with an attachment which may have contained the fbi's wanted poster con taping her husband's picture. now, something else found on a
6:05am
computer in this investigation, al-qaeda's magazine inspire. we don't know if that was russell's computer or one of the tsarnaev brothers. we know that yesterday investigators returned to the area around umass dartmouth where the younger bombing suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, was enrolled. we're told they were looking for bomb 7 test sites. how scary is that? we don't know what they found, if anything. back to you in new york. >> thanks, peters. we have a fox news alert for you now. here's some brand new video of syrian president assad who made a rare public appearance in the capitol of damascus. he joined thousands of students anand families unveiling a stat. it's his second appearance this week. he's stayed out of the public eye since a civil war started two years ago. the fbi is helping to investigate the death of a prominent pennsylvania doctor from cyanide poisoning.

6:08am
fast and furious scandal which unfolded under president obama's watch where thousands of guns were intentionally given to drug cartels and drug lords that ended up killing americans. >> they were supposed to be tracked, but of course, those 1700 guns that were given were not tracked. now hundreds of those gunnings have -- guns have ended up at the scenes of homicide. the president is on a three-day tour, speaking mostly to high school and college students in mexico. take a listen and see if you think it sounds like an apology. >> the united states we recognize our responsibilities. we understand that much of the root cause of violence that's been happening here in mexico for which so many mexicans have suffered is the demand for illegal drugs in the united states. we also recognize that motives the guns used to commit violence here in mexico come from the united states. >> he may be accurate that the majority of the guns do come from the united states. thathat's factually accurate according to the department of justice, but the idea that the

mexican government is so virtual witvirtouus, one of the most corrupt governments in the world. if you're on the drug cartel's payroll and you happen to be a police officer and then a drug cartel comes in, another drug lord comes in and pays you more and you jump ship and you start protecting that cartel, corruption, corruption, corruption, bodies lining up on the treats streets. it's our fault? mexico is a disaster because it has no rule of law. that's the bottom line. yes, most weapons in mexico come from the u.s. most weapons in canada come from the u.s. canada doesn't have mass killings. yes, most drugs moving through mexico come from the united states. switzerland is not like mexico. mexico is corrupt and in bed with the drug lords. it's our
6:10am
problem. that's one of the reason we have 11 million illegal aliens in the country because they're fleeing mexico. they should apologize to us. >> it's amidst of the immigration debate. the predecessor sai president sg interesting. he said we will get this done. he virtually gave a guarantee. he is very confident that immigration reform is going to happen even though the debate here obviously is contentious and continues. well, another character or person who the president has been citing while he's down there in the speeches is a guy that's angered a lot of latin america in the past, and it's interesting that he was choosing to cite and even quote this writer, this mexican writer, a famous mexican writer. one of the things he has leveled against the united states back in the '80s, he called america the protector of tyrants. he blamed america for mexico's inability to mod h he modernizen
6:11am
1982. he is, by all accounts, a liberal democrat, so it wouldn't be surprising that president obama will cite him as he's trying to relate to the mexican people. when you look at his past and the things he's said against america, it's outrageous. >> it's also consistent with the enteinternational left which bls america. america is a deeply imperfect country but compared to what? compared to the government of mexico which cozied up to fidel castro? this is a decent country with good intentions that sometimes go awry. the idea that we're the cause of disorder in the world is a flat out lie. to anybody who would say anything like that, it's ridiculous. >> let you kno he made headlines tweet about obama care and plan b. this morning congressman steve stockman tells him what has him so fired up. you know the saying about finders, keepers. one man took that literally and it got him arrested. wait until you hear his defense.

6:16am
us. that's a pretty nifty accurate summation there. >> thanks, tucker. yeah. it is. i think that in the age of political correctness, we can't decide how old people are. it's situational ethics. >> what is the logic here? what is the unifying theory that allows someone to think it's okay for a 15-year-old without any presently involvement, permission, acknowledgement of any kind to buy prescription birth control but people, adults should not be allowed to decide whether or not to purchase health insurance? >> yeah. it's crazy. we have, as i stated, situational ethics. obama wants to push his agenda, and he changes the facts cord to what fits his agenda. even in the case of viability on abortion, you know, they can't decide when a baby is a baby. they can't decide when a child is a child. you have someone 26 years old that's treated as a child when it comes to insurance, but then someone as young as 15 or younger is allowed to, you know,
6:17am
get birth control without the parents' consent. if they take large quantities or misappropriate the use of this drug, it causes hemorrhaging. the parent will have no idea what's going on with their child, so it's pretty alarming and it's disconcerting to me and others. i thought it was a humor russ way to kind of send out a message to show the hypocracy of their logic. for some reason they kind of freaked out over it. >> the deeper theme seems to be a power grab aimed at parents, taking away presently authority. you no longer have the right with your child to make decisions on something as intimate and important as birth control. this is basically stripping parents of authority, is it not? >> exactly. in fact, i'm trying to remember. one oone of our friends on the t said you parents need to get over the fact that they're children. this has become an orwellian state which your children are
6:18am
not property and your guardians of their fate and future but they've become property of the state. we're more and more leaning that way. we have tests done in which the children in schools aren't allowed to share with their parents. i think patients need to become -- parents need to become more aware of what's going on in the school and this administration's agenda. >> very quickly, congressman, is there a certain point at which the public will say you know what? i should be able to choose what kind of shower head i buy, i should be able to be a parent to my children, so government, back off. when do people get upset about this, do you think. >> tucker, i'm with you. when you're screwing in the light bulb that the government recommended, the toilet you're flushing, the big gulp you're not supposed to have, i hope we gather steam enough to say enough is enough. if we wanted that kind of lifestyle, we could move to cuba and be told exactly what to do and how to live. this is america, for god's sake, and we need to stop protecting

6:34am
the most frustrating about the assignment? not the hardships, the gunfire, the threats, it's dealing and fighting against the people, programs and personnel who are supposed to be supporting me. >> nordstrom is significant because he was the top security officer in libya prior to the attack. nordstrom has been critical of the state department's ability to provide security for the men and women in the country. the house committee does have a rule that 72 hours before a hearing they have to announce the witnesses. these are the three who have agreed to testify willingly. it's unclear if others will. clayton, al eu6789i, tucker, bao you. >> much more on foxnews.com on this breaking news. >> thanks, liz beth. >> very interesting. they're speculating maybe they're cia. here's another fox news alert. the defense department said u.s. service members have been killed by a roadside bomb in southern afghanistan. the news comes just a week after the taliban launched its

6:37am
there, beautiful homes, million dollar homes. millions live in california and they know wildfire season has begun early this year. typically we see it late fall and winter. because they didn't have the moisture from the snow pack, it's been exceptionally dry across the west. it's just added fuel to these fires. fortunately the good news is they have more of an onshore flow today. that means moisture from the pacific is going to come in, drop those temperatures, bring up the relative humidity, going to help firefighters. we actually could get some rain in the forecast monday into tuesday. let's go over to your maps and i'll show you what's going on elsewhere across the country. you can see it's very dry in the west, but look at the mess over the central u.s. where we saw record-breaking snow over the midwest and the central plains. i mean, even down into arkansas they had record-breaking snow in may. the temperatures still very cold. 35 in minneapolis, 39 in kansas city, 43 in memphis, 50 in dallas. a beautiful day, i must mention, across the east coast where
6:38am
we're dealing with temperatures in the 50s. the snow, the snow depth was incredible earlier on today when we saw 12 to 18 inches across the midwest. that is going to melt significantly, so that's the good news behind this. of course, we'll be following the wildfires and the snow all in the extreme weather center and we are going to clayton and tucker. are they outside here? they are. >> we're behind you it's time to celebrate national burger month here at fox news chatham thinewschannel this mor. >> helping us celebrate, we're joined by the executive chef of the hard rock orlando, russell booth. >> great to be here. >> this is the most american thing -- this is basically a citizenship test. bring anyone from around the world. if they like this, they're welcome in our country. >> this is great. may is national burger month. the hard rock cafe is celebrating in a great way by featuring our legendary burgers and the possibility to win a
